ArCADia Architecture 9.0 is an industry-specific module of the ArCADia BIM system, based on the ideology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). The program can be used to create professional architectural documentation. Above all, it is intended for architects and all who shape and restore building forms.
ArCADia Architecture 9.0 is used for the object-oriented creation of professional architectural plans and sections, interactive 3D previews and realistic visualization. The program features specialist architectural functions, such as: automatic cross-sections, automatic dimensioning or importing object shapes from other programs.
The ArCADia Architecture 9.0 module is an extension of the ArCADia BIM system's basic functions, which means that part of the building modelling options is in the basic version of the program, while the extended and more advanced ones are in the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE module itself.
The insertion of arch, single- and multi-layer walls.
The possibility to transform a 2D drawing created from polylines or lines into the plan of single- or multi-layer walls, virtual walls or a foundation plan.
Script Windows And Doors
The insertion of windows of various shapes (circular, triangular, with an arch, etc.), including the possibility to set horizontal and vertical division and define the visibility of windowsills or cut an opening itself (without a windowsill) in a wall in the shape of special windows (doors).
The insertion of single and double arched doors, including additional side or top lighting.
New windows have been added to the script library; unipartite, bipartite, and tripartite ones with the possibilities of entering mullions or vent windows.
The following elements, among other things, have been added to the doors library: revolving, sliding, swinging, and evacuation doors.
The insertion of an opening of a set width and height in a wall from the left and right side (insertion at any height).
The possibility to insert a recess of a predetermined depth.
The insertion of any floor by indicating its shape.
The insertion of a floor on ground in rooms of the lowest level.
Entering the openings in the ceiling automatically or by hand.
Any modification of a ceiling/floor, adding/removing contour corners and splitting a ceiling/floor
The insertion of suspended ceilings of any shape or an automatically adapting one to a given room.The ceiling can be finished with a board or consist of set modules determined by the beam and panel spacing placed between them.
The insertion of any suspened ceiling with individual elements: main and cross beams, external rack and opening finishing, panels and hangers.
The insertion of vertical and inclined steel columns.
The insertion of a horizontal steel object.
The insertion of a bar frame from a .f3d file, which is seen as one element but can be exploded and viewed as a single bar element (to be moved and edited separately).
The multi-insertion of bar elements with defined quantity, spacing and the direction of insertion.
The creation of a spiral staircase inserted with or without a pillar.
The insertion of single ramps or ramps with a landing.
The insertion of balustrades on terraces and stairs by drawing them in on the projection.
Automatic insertion of the balustrade on the stairs.
The automatic and free insertion of pitched roofs, including a complete range of modification options (changing into a single-sloped or double-sloped roof, cha ging the height of a knee wall and inclination of any slope separately).
The insertion of windows and openings in the roof.
The insertion of dormer roofs (dormer windows).
The insertion of a timber structure from the R3D3-Frame 3D program (roof slopes exported to R3D3-Frame 3D are structurally calculated, while the roof framework is returned to ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE).
The insertion of roof hatches.
Automatic or manual insertion of roof gutters.
The insertion of drain pipes which automatically detect the gutter and the level of the terrain.
Automatic or manual insertion of ridge tiles.
The insertion of chimney cowls, ventilation cowls and fume cowls.
The insertion of snow guards: snow fences, snow crushers and stoppers.
The possibility to define the type of a roof before inserting.
The tracking options are now available when inserting the roof.
The possibility to insert a solar collector on the roof.
The insertion of a strip footing or any defined spot footing in the plan.
Default strip footing is inserted along with the walls, and pad footing together with reinforced columns.
Drawing any shape of a solid with a set height. The solid can be further used as a terrace, platform, mezzanine, and similar elements.
The insertion of a solid of a specified width and height, e.g. as binding joists and beams, including the possibility to select an insertion axis or edge.
Solids are inserted through a rectangular outline.
Edition of solids by dividing them and creating any holes.
Importing objects in the following formats: 3DS, aco and o2c.
User-defined symbols (2D elements) can be saved in the program library.
A project package, which is the possibility of moving the project with imported objects to a computer where the standard object library doesn't contain these objects.
The possibility to save an object from any of the system components of ArCADia in the library, e.g. the element created from from solids.
The automatic creation of a cross-section by indicating the cut line of a building, including the possibility to define elements visible in the cross-section.
The insertion of a stepped cross-section with any number of folds.
The automatic insertion of ring beams, locating them above the load-carrying layer of a wall (with set types of wall layers) in the floor void.
Lintels visible in the cross-section are automatically inserted with the window and door joinery.
The cross-section can be automatically or manually refreshed to accelerate the work on the design.
Views can be exploded, maintaining element groups and support for the Project Manager.
The possibility of showing a cross-section of 3D objects. The option is turned off by default, which can be changed from the Project Manager window after switching on the light bulb.
Materials for each element with its properties are defined.
Simple (fast and easy to use) or advanced rendering, including the possibility to define all necessary settings (lighting type and position, shadow softening).
The new rendering method for outdoors and indoors Photon mapping).
The possibility of rendering in different views: daylight and nighttime views.
The rendering window is independent of the ArCADia-ARCHITECTURE program, which makes it possible to continue working on a design, as the visualisation is calculated.
Multi-rendering, which is recording the views from predefined cameras.
Saving of the building view with rendering as a single scene or from selected cameras as defined in the program.
The ability to turn off the computer after a multi-record of rendering from the cameras introduced into the design.
Daylight analysis with a date and time setting, thereby rendering a scene on the days that interest us.
